About

  • Are You a caring person looking for a meaningful experience?
  • Do You think you could provide companionship for a patient, such as reading, journaling, playing cards, sharing hobbies, and relieving family members and friends?
  • Do You have a special skill that can be used to provide comfort such as Pet Therapist, Massage Therapist, Beautician, or do you play a musical instrument?
  • Could You support family members by sitting with and providing company to the patient so that the caregiver can take a much-needed break?
